This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about
'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'
when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.
I still laugh whenever I remember that the reason there was a whole section in Goblet of Fire dedicated to Hermione explaining the correct pronunciation of her name to Viktor Krum was because JK Rowling had found out there were actually people out there calling her character “Hermy One”
I just realized that “mini” is short for “minimal” and I feel like my whole life has been turned upside down
Wait that’s not even true it’s short for “miniature” FUCK MY LIFE
minimal golf. not too much golf. just enough golf so it wont piss you off.
If you ever embarrass yourself in front of your crush, just remember that when Ginny was 11 she wrote Harry an absolutely horrifyingly awkward valentine poem that was read aloud to a large group of people, and she still got it in the end.
am I sick from anxiety or am I actually physically ill? a memoir by me
am i lazy or horribly depressed: the sequel
does everyone hate me or am I just very insecure: the completion of the trilogy
my sister just came to my room and called me a “f****t”
i was shocked because she’s 11 and doesn’t know shit like this and I said, “What the hell? Who told you that?”
and she said, “oh shane dawson says it all the time”
i had to sit her down and explain that this word is awful and should never be used. jesus fuck.
Please pray for these children.
